the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough

, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh

discretion to certify when this is substantially complete. president obama states it in a speech in the past though that he believed the border fence was basically complete. if you determine little or no additional fencing is necessary, what do think we this initial certify that it has been completed? is passed as it is think we written, i will move very quickly. we have sector by sector technology plans. we have not been sitting back waiting for a bill to pass. very quickly. >> do you believe the discretion could permit you to make a finding that is complete without building any additional fencing? right now the border patrol has done an extensive study of where fencing make sense across the southwest border. there were 653 miles. we would go back and look at the kind of fencing is. he can do this for humanitarian purposes to ensure family unity. in what situations which you think about granting the waiver? caveat on myo have the answers. see that there would be considerations based on the aid of a conviction, whether the individual was the primary wage , ther for the family record sent a p

brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce
is to kill them overseas before they get here. i think president obama has been doing a pretty good job of that in the past few years. immigration is a very complex issue. that is my basic take on that. the: colonel larsen, one of earlier caller talked about the family of the suspect. the ap said it talk to the father of the two young men. the father of the suspects in the boston marathon bombing said his son on a list is a smart and accomplished young man. smart on the loose is a and accomplished young man. that is from the associated press, who reached the father of the two suspects in russia. call is from it in maryland. would like to i thank the colonel for his service. i wanted to ask the -- asking a question concerning terrorism and its definition. i believe political terrorism, of course, is widely known and accepted. but there is also secular terrorism, as shown in bosnia, alsoxample, and probably institutionalized care as we experienced in nazi germany and bosnia recently. i would like your comments on that. guest: i have been doing some work with survivors of the siege and the
. we are -- >> we're hearing president obama set to visit boston tomorrow just to make everybody understand how big this is to the country. there will be an interfaith service when we gets here. we're tracking this entire story for you live in boston, looking at who was lost, but also the important steps toward finding who did this and why. let's bring in national correspondent susan candiotti joining us here in boston with the latest. susan? >> good morning, chris. because of these photos, we are now getting a close-up look at what a killer or killers used to kill and to maim innocent people. crime scene photos show part of what could be a pressure cooker used in the bombings. others show charred wire, attached to a battery. what appears to be a small circuit board. a half-inch nail. and a blood-stained zipper pull tab. another shows what looks like a massive ball bearing bb intended as deadly shrapnel. investigators are also combing through hundreds of photos from the scene, including this one, where a light-colored bag sits next to a mailbox. the before and after images captur
as well as the nomination of sylvia burr well, president obama's pick to head the office of management and budget. and for more on thenline sales tax bill we spoke earlie a r withpil reporter. >> they're going to be focusing on an issue that i think really hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention but it is going to affect most americans and that is, whether or not you pay sales taxes when you buy something online. this is a huge issue for your pocketbook if you buy something on amazon.com or ebay. chances are pretty good right now that you don't pay sales taxes on that purchase but you do if you go to wal-mart.com, or if you go to a brick-and-mortar store and that is because of these convoluted rules who has charge letaxes and who doesn't. the senate wants to, or at least looks like a majority of the senate is going to pass this bill this week. 75 senators voted for a version of this bill a few weeks ago when the senate passed its budget resolution. it is a nonbinding vote. this would be a binding bill that would then go over to the house and it would -- >> what would the bill -- >> very

the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in the house, drinking or in
